I just learned to use a sewing machine last fall. so far my favorite simple things are hot pads, kitchen towels, cloth napkins, placemats, and gift bags. I have made my first handbag for a gift recently, and while I like the product it is a lot of work. I enjoy the somewhat instant gratification of these simpler rectangular things, I can turn out a set over a workweek or weekend.
